Hello, I installed Norton AntiVirus 2007 a week ago on my computer and ever since, whenever I try to run certain programs (like Inkscape), I'm greeted by a "Windows - No Disk" error message. My OS is Windows XP Media Center Edition.

Any help is appreciated; I can post more information/details upon request.

Thanks,
Jeff

Thanks for the reply. However, it doesn't appear that my problem is the same one as the one in the thread above, as upon running my computer in safe mode, the error message still comes up whenever I run Inkscape. For clarification, the error message does not appear on startup - only when I use Inkscape. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the program; no help. All was fine until I installed Norton AntiVirus.

Again, any help is appreciated.

When was the last time you have run scandisk/defrag on this pc? If not in a while or not ever it would be time to do so and see where it gets you.

Thanks for the quick reply. I ran Scandisk about a week ago and defragged it a couple of days ago, both with marginal to no success in terms of loading/shutting down time.

No luck, unfortunately. After running HijackThis and making the fixes posted, startup is still slow and the "no disk" error still comes up when I try to open Inkscape.

Ok another thing to try, although it sounds silly, why dont you try inserting the disc it prompts for (if you have it) or reinstalling the programs that give trouble. Try it with just one first and see what happens. If this fixes the problem you may need to go through and do them one by one manually.

lol I would just say dump Norton and get something more useful. Frankly, Im suprised this is the only problem that you're having with their software.

After doing some testing on another computer at my house, it appears that the "no disk" problem is not related to Norton at all. I installed Inkscape on another computer running Norton 2007 and ran the program. Instead of continually popping up errors as my computer does, this computer runs the program perfectly. So the question is what could be causing these errors?

Also, I uninstalled and reinstalled Inkscape on my computer again - still no luck.
